Having a perfect smile is a dream that many people have, especially when they see TV shows and films full of actors with straight, bright teeth every day. But it is common knowledge that most TV and film stars have had dental work done to give them a great smile.
Having a nice smile can also help to boost your confidence and give you a positive outlook on life. When you have a confident and attractive smile, you can feel relaxed about showing your teeth, especially when trying to create a positive first impression at a job interview, or when in a business meeting where you need to present a talk.
But having straight teeth can be beneficial for more reasons than to simply make your smile look good, although that is a great bonus. Having straighter teeth can help you to keep your teeth clean and prevent oral health issues from developing.
No more hard-to-reach places
Crooked teeth can be a nuisance because they create many hard-to-reach places that you cannot easily get to with a toothbrush or dental floss. Most people with crooked teeth are unable to clean their teeth as effectively as those with a straighter smile.
Over time, all these hard-to-reach places can start to build up plaque bacteria and tartar that can lead to tooth decay, cavities, gingivitis and eventually tooth loss.
The great thing about having your teeth straightened by using an Invisalign system is that while you are undergoing your treatment, the people around you may remain completely unaware of it. This is because Invisalign braces are made from completely clear or tooth-coloured material that makes them hard to spot, even when talking face to face with someone.
Smile with confidence
You can smile with confidence, even when wearing your Invisalign braces because you won’t need to hide your smile behind a mouth full of metal wires. Invisalign braces are just as effective at straightening your teeth like a traditional brace that uses metal wires, so you don’t need to worry that wearing them will take longer to see results than more traditional braces.
One of the things that have held people back from having their teeth straightened as adults in the past is the thought of having to wear metal braces while working and socialising with people. But by using an Invisalign brace you can speak with confidence and smile without revealing your secret.
Invisalign conducted a poll asking 2000 adults over the age of 18 that had Invisalign treatments why they wanted straighter teeth. The results were pretty conclusive that most of those interviewed said that having straighter teeth gave them much more confidence, and that confidence positively impacted every area of their lives, including their careers, social lives and close relationships.
Interestingly, 70% of those polled by Invisalign reported that having their teeth straightened improved their appearance and boosted their confidence. When asked if they could change nothing else about their appearance other than their teeth, 70% said having straight teeth would still make them feel more confident.
